The Snellville Farmers Market will open for the seventh year June 4, kicking off a season event organizers say will be better than ever.
The market will take place each Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. through Sept. 24.
Opening day will begin with the national anthem at 8:30 a.m., sung by Snellvilles own Kriss Johnson, who is the reigning Ms. Senior Georgia.
The market is located on the Towne Green in front of City Hall, 2342 Oak Road.
We are all excited by our renovated venue. said SFM Committee Chair Gretchen Schulz. The new brick walls surrounding the market will give customers more security and a wonderful place to sit and have a bite to eat, or just enjoy a moment of respite from wandering the market. The availability of more electrical outlets and other amenities will make exhibiting even better for our vendors. Our new amenities even include water fountains for our canine visitors!
Returning vendors will be providing fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables, plants and fresh flowers, BBQ, crafts, boiled peanuts, a wide variety of baked goods, jams, jellies, locally grown mushrooms, organic bath and body products and locally made honey.
The market will also be welcoming several new vendors who will bring baked goods, specialty ice cream, candy, milk, cheese, butter, coffee, pasture-raised pork, salad dressings, sauces, rubs and unique crafts.
Chick-fil-A will be selling chicken biscuits for the first two hours of the market and then switch to a lunch menu.
Throughout the season, there will also be special events like cooking demonstrations, music and community service booths. This season, city employees will be coming on different weeks, giving the community an opportunity to ask questions about city operations. The Snellville Police Department will be there opening day.
